Preposition as base

Quite marginally prepositions may be used as the basis to form adjectives. Only a few prepositions are involved, and only two suffixes are active in this field. One is -lik, which is also used with other bases. An example with a preposition is efter behind, which may form the adjective efterlik backward. The other suffix is the superlative, which thus appears to be also active outside the adjectival and adverbial domain. The preposition bûten outside, for example, may be used in an expression like de bûtenste baan the outside-SUP track the outside track.
